Insigna flat screen TV powering up

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have an Insignia (Best Buy brand, 1.5 year old) 32 inch LCD flat screen TV, here's the issue. It'll look like its turning on (blue LED light indicator) but after a couple seconds, go to RED and not power up. Try again and it goes blank and back to RED, never back to blue like it's even trying to power up. So, I unplug and try again, and again, etc. No luck, but every once in a while, like tonight, it will hold on the blue LED light and power up, but not often at all. Turn off and back on, it's good. Wait a while and no luck.

From what I know, this means it's not the "guts" of the TV, since it will work on occasion, as its on now. Not the "color wheel", again since it's on. I've tried other outlets, same thing, so I'm confident it'sd not an in-house wiring issue. Any ideas or past experience?

Thanks, Chris

Me thinks it is in the guts of the TV and sooner or later (probably sooner) it's not going to come on again.

About the only other thing I can think of is to check the manual or settings for any kind of sleep or standby mode.

If there is any warranty left, I'd be taking it in. Remember, if you bought it on a credit card, your warranty automatically doubles from the credit card company in many cases.

Ditto, it's inside.

If it was a CRT I'd say power supply issue, but I've never been in a LCD though.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!

      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
